About this grant

Michigan Radio is an award-winning, public radio station housed at the University of Michigan. With Mott Foundation’s support over the last two years and despite COVID-19 demands for media attention, Michigan Radio’s Environment Report was able to devote increased coverage to Great Lakes and drinking water issues and broaden their audience reach. The station also solidified its relationship as a partner in the Great Lakes News Collaborative. With renewed support, the station will produce more in-depth stories across more platforms and develop community engagement journalism to address issues of diversity, while continuing to share and co-create content for and with the Great Lakes News Collaborative partners.
